Omaha Skutt vs. Lincoln Pius X, 3.8

Lincoln Pius X’s Charlie Easley (34) is tripe-teamed under the basket by Omaha Skutt’s Andrew Merfeld (2), Charles Fletcher (24) and Tyler Skradski (55) in the first half of a Class B semifinal at the boys state basketball tournament Friday at Pinnacle Bank Arena.

First-team Super-Staters Charlie Easley of Lincoln Pius X and Nebraska signee Akol Arop headline the players who will participate in the 15th annual Med Express Urgent Care All-Star boys basketball game at 8 p.m. Friday at Omaha Benson High School.

Four other Lincoln players — Southeast’s Michael Anderson, Lincoln High’s Keyshawn Jenkins and Jaden Horton and North Star’s Josiah Allick — will join Easley on the Coral Orange roster. South Dakota State recruit and second-team Super-Stater Baylor Scheierman of Aurora is also on Coral Orange.

Arop tops the Scuba Blue roster, which also includes Lincoln Southwest’s Mayuom Buom, York all-stater Brady Danielson and Seward all-stater Nate Lliteras.

The girls game at 6 p.m. features three first-team Super-Staters — Millard North’s Lauren West for Coral Orange and McKenna Sims of South Sioux City and Oakland-Craig’s Dacey Nelson on Scuba Blue. Lincoln players on the Coral Orange roster are Lincoln Southwest all-stater Jaden Ferguson and her Silver Hawk teammate Hannah Kelle and Lincoln Northeast’s Kambree Rhodes and Azaiya Trainor.

A pair of Lincoln Pius X seniors, Jayden Greisen and Kloee Sander, are on the Scuba Blue team as well as Seward’s Kayla Luebbe and Nebraska City’s Snezana Serafimoska.
